I'm not a pc expert but there are a few here at the forum. I would be patient and wait for additional responses.

My thoughts are service pack 1? I think I use service pack 3. I would make sure my firewall is not blocking any of the SL applications, turn of any pop-up blocker programs.

When I first loaded V2 I noticed a bunch of pop ups opening, voice accessing the internet, a notice my graphics card was not recognized, they could cause a freeze.

If the login screen appears, it's going past the point where most people report the loading procedure hangs at VFS initializing. I would be inclined to uninstall everything again including removing the SL folder in AppData and also the Second Life Prefetch file in Windows > Prefetch just in case it is corrupted in some way. Then download and install a fresh copy of the viewer.

I can't find anything to suggest that ESET Smart Security causes any conflicts with Second Life and Second Life is not referenced anywhere on the ESET Wilders Security Forum or in its KB. Are you running ESET in Active or Passive mode?

 If loading still fails, can you please advise on how much RAM you have on your laptop. If very limited and Windows 7 OS is hogging a good chunk of it, more so than Vista did, perhaps that is causing a problem. Torley alluded to this in a thread some time ago. The VFS reference he quoted is taken from the VFS Wiki.

"For users with only 512 megabytes of physical memory, up to 75% of their system memory may already be allocated by the OS and background services. For better performance with limited physical memory, the cache setting should actually be lower rather than higher, to minimize the VFS RAM-disk allocation size. For example, a 1-gigabyte cache setting creates a 204 megabyte VFS (20% of 1 gig) and which essentially guarantees poor performance and heavy swapping with only 512 megs of physical memory, even before the client has connected to the grid."
